The council also added that the Association of Indian Universities has accorded the BSB equivalence to school boards in the country. The AIU has accorded equivalence to Class 10 and 12 board examination of the Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) and it will function as a regular school Board within India,” he added.
The BSB aims re-establishing the Indian knowledge systems by discarding the education policy developed by Macaulay. It also aims at establishing knowledge systems, Bhartiya Gyan Parampara, and the gurukul system to substitute the western culture. The board was set up by yoga teacher Ramdev and Patnajali’s Balkrishna.
The AICTE was established in November 1945 as a national-level apex advisory body to conduct a survey on the facilities available for technical education and to promote development in the country in a coordinated and integrated manner. It is the statutory authority for planning, formulation, and maintenance of norms and standards. Its objectives are to ensure quality assurance through accreditation, funding in priority areas, monitoring, and evaluation and maintaining parity of certification and awards.
